Arrow’s New Black Canary

Arrow

When Arrow initially started, we thought we knew all the strange television changes that Greg Berlanti had made were going to stick. We knew who the characters would be, their destinies. After years of changes, and twists, things are taking shape in a most unexpected way, with the newly introduced Dinah Drake taking on the mantle of a badass meta-human Black Canary, who gets to suit up next season.

It felt that we wanted to save it for a special occasion, and the premiere seemed like a really good place to do it. She needs something tactical. She has this meta power, but she also has the bo staff, so we just felt it was right for her to have something that was definitely more than a nod to the DCU character, but also something that was distinctive from what we’ve seen before. This really fits the bill. Maya Mani, as usual, did an amazing job with it. My favorite part is actually the subtle hint of the gold and yellow lines in it.
